Past Projects

2015 New government rules and partners made this a year of change with some enormous projects completed at break neck speed.

Key Highlights:

2014 was a very busy.

Key Highlights:

 

2013 – We had two primary areas of focus for 2013.

Key Highlights:

First our efforts  helped  orphanages to begin gearing up to become self-sustaining, which is our ultimate goal!  We  added several projects to help provide them systems that can lead to their independence.

The second focus area was centered on helping the growing Burmese orphan refugee problem in the Mae Sot, Thailand and surrounding vicinity.  The orphans survive by wading through the mounds of garbage for recyclable plastic which unfortunately doesn’t get them enough to even get enough food or water let alone shelter etc.

AGAPE ORPHANAGE HOME IN MAE SOT, THAILAND

At Agape, which is the largest orphanage we’ve seen to date, we accomplished both our goals with a multitude of large scale projects.  

Thanks to MACRO Consulting and the McCullough family we were able to start major food sustenance programs – Farms!

The “Chicken Farm” for Agape we transform the space you see into a facility to Chicken Coup 2house the Orphanages chickens and whatever comes next to help with the 100+ children’s sustenance. 

 

 

The “Pig Farm” We transformed the space you see into a facility to house the Orphanages Pig2100_648350+Pigs which will not only provides food but will be used as a revenue generator to fund other areas of the Orphanage.

 

 

 

FreezerA new Freezer was provided for the Orphanage which is essential for food preservation especially in this extremely hot and humid climate and all the new food programs we initiated.

 

 

 

Fish Farm Fingerlings we secured 6000 fingerlings to begin cultivating the possibilities for real nutritious food and income generation through this program for the 120 Orphans living on site so the food requirements are enormous.

Sewing ProjectWe supplied the funds to launch the center for orphan refugees girls to learn a vocational trade so that they may have a chance at a better life rather than wind up in an undesirable situation  (most would be at risk for sex trafficking, forced prostitution etc).

The first class graduated 19 girls and the 2013 class is fully funded.  Five of the 19 went on to jobs making 3 to 4 times non skilled factory worker and the remaining 14 girls went on to further education pursuits.

This was made possible through many wonderful donors: Mike Ditzler, Jennifer Levy, Neil Asher, Linda Meadows, John Meadows, Adrienne Love, Mary Lou Patten, and Tom Love.

 So many donors made a real difference in 2013 supplying these children with the basics here are some examples:

2012 was our first full year in operation after more than 1 year of research and due diligence. We still were learning the ropes so that we could deliver on our promise that 100% 

of every penny donated would get to the children.  After a few visits to SE Asia refugee and orphanage sites we selected a couple of groups to work with initially and here’s some highlights of what we achieved this year thanks to donors and volunteers:

 

FUTURELIGHT ORPHAN HOME IN MAE SOT, THAILAND

Egg SandwichesThanks to MACRO Consulting Inc. we provided the means to serve 18,250 hot nutritious and delicious meals to about 50 orphans mostly Burmese refugees.

 

 

 

 

MACRO Consulting, Inc. is pleased to fund the project Breakfast for Future Kids of the Future Light Orphanage, Mae Sot, Thailand, for the calendar year 2011 and 2012. “ We hope our financial assistance will make a difference in the lives of these children by providing them with a basic breakfast.”  

 –Paul-Richard McCullough, President

 

Beds Blankets etcEach of the children were supplied beds, pillows, blankets, school materials and other basic supplies thanks to Christine McCullough!

At the beginning of last year, funding a project was part of my New Year resolution.  During the course of the year, I got to see how the children life improved and how much joy they had when they received new beds, blankets and pillows.   Each time I received news and pictures of what was accomplished with my donation, I was reminded of what I already have — and I look at what I have in a new light and, I have a lot.    For a second consecutive year, I am happy of giving a donation to the Phamile Foundatiion as part of my resolution.   I am extremely happy to fund the same project as I know  basic supplies are always needed.Christine McCullough

ORPHAN BOYS HOME MAE SOT, THAILAND

Thank you to MBR22 Burmese homeless orphan refugee boys ages 7 to 17 years were rented a lovely house to call home due to the generosity of Miguel Beteta Rodrigo, IDC and Tom Love.

I hope my contribution will help create a better life for these Orphans in need.  I chose The Phamile Foundation because 100% of my contribution goes directly to the children and because they are totally transparent in every way. You are encouraged to attend meetings, follow your project, talk to volunteers, etc.  Their system of accountability is great.Miguel Beteta Rodrigo

Thank you to Na1,144 pounds of fish were bought and delivered in twice weekly increments adding much needed protein to diets thanks to Na Liu.

This February I went to Thailand and saw these kids many who had lost their parents.  I was lucky to grow up with lots of love and attention so I wanted them to see people care about them.  I want them to have the chance to grow up healthy and to receive a good education which requires a nutritious diet.  I wish more people would give because you get more in return when you help others.  It was important to see that The Phamile Foundation has a network of people set up to verify accountability of donations so the kids get every cent.Na Liu

Boys Home FruitsOver 4,000 of their meals also now included fruits & veggies for a balanced diet to MACRO Consulting Inc. bigheartedness.

I think I picked this particular project because education is on my mind a lot at the moment.  My oldest son is a junior, so we've begun the college exploration process with him.  We just visited 6 schools in the Northeast at the end of April.   I'm fortunate that my kids have no obstacles regarding pursuing an education, but clearly that's not the case for these girls.  I particularly wanted to support one of the programs that is designed to help girls because I'm afraid that they still don't hold the same status as boys in many parts of the world.  My sense is that's particularly true in Asia. Neil Ascher
